NORTH ADAMS — The North Adams Police are actively pursing significant leads after receiving more reports of burglaries involving television sets.

A Highland Avenue resident reported the theft of a television set from a home around lunchtime on Wednesday, according to Sgt. James Burdick.

"It was in a 45 minute to an hour span that the house was empty and that is when someone went in and took the television," Burdick said. "There was someone there eating lunch and the television was there, that person left and when the other occupant returned, the television was gone."

It was the latest in a series of burglaries or attempts in the city.

An Elmwood Avenue resident reported the theft of a television on Thursday.

And earlier this week police responded to a Church Street residence where a television and a laptop computer were taken.

Police also received a report of another attempted break-in on Church Street. A resident reported that someone tried to enter the home through a kitchen window but ran off when the occupant, who was at home at the time, saw him trying to get in.

Burdick reiterated his advice that residents should keep doors and windows locked and pay attention to surroundings.

"This is a very active investigation right now," he said.
